Mark Cartwright, Head of Commercial Vehicle Incident Prevention, National Highways

Mark Cartwright joined what was then Highways England in February 2020 to head up their Commercial Vehicle Incident Prevention Team (CVIPT).

The role of CVIPT is to identify and develop programmes to reduce collisions on England’s Strategic Route Network involving commercial vehicles.

Recent projects include the provision of adapted HGV cabs to police to support their activities, the development of a comprehensive Van Driver Toolkit information service and launching CALMDriver, a suicide prevention / mental health resource specifically designed for the CV drivers.

Prior to joining National Highways, Mark was with Freight Transport Association for over 30 years where he latterly developed and managed their award winning Van Excellence programme.
